OTTO BOCK - [ Skippi. ] Skippi

Austech Medical


Overcoming limits, developing autonomy, gaining a new range of motion: Skippi makes it fun to discover and investigate something new every day. The power wheelchair is narrow, fast, and maneuverable. Children can easily explore every corner of even narrow rooms - they are more mobile and independent. In this way, Skippi supports your child’s urge to move and explore. Skippi’s colorful design is also appealing.

Rest After a Day’s Adventures
It takes just one step to adjust the position of the seat and backrest comfortably to the needs of your child, so it is no problem to do this in the course of a day. Your child can be actively involved in the events of the day whilst in an upright position and then relax after the day‘s adventures in a reclined or tilted position. Skippi can be disassembled in a few simple steps and stowed away in the trunk of any small car. This allows you to take Skippi on vacations and excursions - without any second thoughts. It is not hard to become familiar with Skippi: The display on the operating console has child-friendly graphics to indicate the currently selected mode. And: Skippi grows with your child. The depth and width of the seat as well as the position and angle of the leg can be easily adjusted to the body size of your child. This makes it possible to use the wheelchair for a longer time.

Skippi offers countless equipment options that can actively encourage the development of the child. The wheelchair, for example, can be equipped with electrical back angle adjustment, seat tilt, controls for the attendant, a tray, bumper bar and seating shell adapter. It is also easy to incorporate different footrests and headrest systems. Your rehab technician will give you precise information on the options and help you configure a wheelchair that suits your child. We also offer Skippi with lighting on request. This lets your child drive safely outside and discover the world actively.
